Ezethu Logistics, the empowerment partner of JSE-listed supply chain specialists Cargo Carriers, has announced the official opening of its Queenstown satellite depot, a new facility established to support the growth and infrastructural expansion projects in the Eastern Cape. With the direction and management from Bloemfontein, the workshop and office facilities in Queenstown will provide logistics services to the province, including the major centres of Port Elizabeth and East London.
The facilities are based on the customer’s site in Queendustria. This pioneering business model ensures speedy and efficient customer service, providing a centralised focus on the client and end user. This approach encourages teamwork from both Ezethu Logistics and the customer, supporting a win-win approach for all. Nico Gerber, Director for Fuel and Powders for the company commented: “We are committed to providing quick turnaround solutions that focus on our customer and our customer’s customer.”
The new facility provides a three-point delivery footprint; including Queenstown, East London and Port Elizabeth; and further afield to outlying areas including the Transkei and the coastal routes of the province.
Bulk and bagged cement volume transportation in the Eastern Cape is growing, bearing testament to the infrastructural investment and expansion of the region’s roads projects.
Ezethu Logistics is an industry-leading Level 3 B-BBEE company that is currently providing logistics services in the region, with the potential for sustainable future growth, indicative of Cargo Carriers’ commitment to transformation and economic growth in South Africa.
“Our commitment to our customers and Government is unwavering as we transform our business to provide a superior service to all,” Gerber concluded.
